XXY is the story of Alex, who was born as an intersex child. The movie has a fine writing to it. The writing material, by Sergio Bizzio, is quite strong in subject matter and it also works wonderfully well as a screenplay. With effective dialogues and some really emotional scenes, the writing is at the top right from the start for XXY. The film has been translated beautifully to the screen by the director and co writer of the film, Lucia Puenzo. The smooth pace and extraction of splendid performance from the lead, Ines Efron, add to the highlights of the film. Highly recommended.
